THE OLD BARBARIC MOl IO,
That to the victor brlonjr the spoils, luw
hud a most deliaJnsr influence upon
American politira, Inasmuch a that with
a great many it ha9 obscured the real
principles lor which parties should con
tend, and has made political contests, not
a statesmanlike advocacy and trial of
great national policies, but a vulgar
scramble for profit and place". During
the early days of Oic Republic, and in
deed till the calamity of war had bur
dened us with a public debt, pension
list, internal revenue, a complicated
financial system, and an immense civil
service the debasing Influence of the
spoils system, was but little felt. But
now, when our civil service I much
more expensive than the army and navy,
and when Its rank and file is superior In
wealth, intelligence and iulluence to the
rank and tile ol the miliary or naval es-
tablMunents ol our own or other conn.

and eutirely independent of political In
ftuenee. Jtie desired, iu short, to con
vert the civil sei yiee from a soulless po

legitimate arm of the public service. The
labor of conversion will be Herculean,
and flic reformers will be met at every
step with the obstacles and discourage
ment that have ever beset those who op
posed "damned custom," but from the
character of those who have put
their hands to the plough, it is believ
ed they will not look back. The evil is
deep rooted, it is said to have been plant

in rooting it out. it will be glory tiiough

A HIO NIl HOI.I.S liLMONSI HA1 1.V.
Nkw Orleans, April C The meeting
in Lafayette square at noon to-day was
imposing in point of numbers, and sig
nificant tor the first appearance before
such a gathering ot two representative
colored men. At one time lully L'O.OOO
person were present. The utmost good
humor prevailed, the unanimity of senti
ment perhaps contributing to
the general - peace. About 2.
(X0 White Leaguers were present, and
.-cattered throughout the crowd, all wear
ii.g citizen's clothes. The resolution
were received with cutlm ;ism. Kvery
denunciation ot Packard invoked a tu
mult, and eiies f "Hang liiin," "Give us
a chance at him, were not uiif'requent.
Mention of Gov. Nicholls, on the other
hand, stirred the crowd to cheers. The
resolutions declaring that the people
will never uuderany circumstances sub
mit to Packard were
UAti.r.n with iFi.u;tiT
vn nil sides. Many colored people were
in the audience, and they helped to wel
come Pinchback nnd Allaine. The
speeches of these colored men eclipsed
lite etlorts of their white associates, and
really coustitut ;d the oratorical features
of the occasion. Both proclaimed them
selves Ifcpublicans, and Allaine even said
that he had the highest respect for Pack
ard, yet the people good humortdly re
fused to tak offense, and cheered thi
colored sHakers more than the others.
Pinchbsck nnd Allaine said that the only
safetr of their people lay in upholding
the Nicholls government. Koth seemed
to be anxious that the color-line shoul I
be broken, and that the present partisan
test should he aboli-hed.
The speech of Allaine, iu particular,
was a surprise to everybody. He is a
young colored man, owner of a valuable
sugar plantation in the North, who late
ly deserted the Packard legislature, and
tow holds a place in the Nichols senate.
He began in a stumbling fa-hiou, but
soon warmed to the subject, and became
eloquent When he closed lie was
loudly applauded, and all the prominent
Democrats on the platform shook him
warmly by the hand.
The members of the conimi'sion heard
the spree he, but not in the'r official
capacity. 'J hey declined seats on the
platform, and dMributc-d themcelves

Wami.')to.n, April 7. ls7".
General It. F. liuth r has been In this
city lor the last two weeks, attending to
busiues in the local courts and before
the departments. A representative ot
the llrratd called Upoll (ielieral
l.utlcr last evening, when the Massa
chusetts statesman gave some of hi
Ideas on the political .situation. Iu re
ply to the Inquiry wlwl he thought of
the policy ot conciliation and pacifica
tion lie said, with the most transparent
irony : "I am as Imppt a I can be.
We are all happy. .'J he whole countrv
is happy. We have all been waiting a
long time lor the blessed consummation
thai has come to us under this new po
litical dispensation the political mil
lennium. God moves iu a mysterious
way his wonders to perform. All our
quarrelling and bickering, the strife be
tween the sections, are at an end: in
truth, the lion nnd the lamb are lying
down together, and (glancing In what
to the ILml'l representative seemed the
direction ot the executive mansion) the
littM child is leading them. All our politi
cal dispiites.contcslsand rival lies are over
now and there never was such a blessed
condition of allairs.''
After a few minutes' pause anil some.
'iVeuu puflj oi his after uinner eignr
Gttucial liutleratid:" M ould you like to
hear from the lilhle a definition ot the
Louisiana commission business?' Lay
ing down his cigar the General took
from a small bookcase near his desk au
edition ot the Bible, and, utter fumbling
over it for some time, read, with an in
describably humorous facial expression,
And unto the angel of the church of
the Lrouiecaus write-: These Hunt's

witness, the beginning of the creation of

cold nor hot. I would thou were cold
or hot. So then because thou art hike
warm and neither cold nor hot, 1 will
spue thee out of niv mouth.
"How I should like." said he. "to
preach a sermon on that text as applied
to the administration in Parson New
man's church." lie continued, "you
read the resolutions of the New hngland
Methodist Conference a lew days ago?
Those ministers represent the sentiments
ot the New l''ngland Methodists. Every
one of them U a Republican. Tho old
fashioned ltcpublicans of New Ltiglaiid
belh ve iu precisely that doctrine, no
matter what you newspaper may Fay.'"
At this point the Hrral.l representa
tive made inquiry, "General, shall we
consider all this as fur the public';
lie rtplyed, " 1 do not care whether
you print it or not. 1 am not talking
treason, an 1 1 do not inteud to talk trea
son. J he Hera Id is w elcome to make
any ne it pleases ot my idea."' '
"What do you think will be the end
ot the policy of the administration ';''
"Well,1 said he, "all our political
history teaches one lesson, which is
this Compromises have never won; on
